I think this noisemaker employs some of the best imagery Kirchhof ever used. This noisemaker must have been popular since it was made for decades and in at least three different color variations. Contrary to this fine seller's assertion, this particular example was made in the 1950s. What is the immediate tip-off? It is marked "Life of the Party," a tag-line Kirchhof only used then.
